Such a positive and uplifting flow is held through the whole Jam.
By the time they hit whitecap you can just feel the vibe electrifying the crowd. Real talented group and from what I hear the light show is a sight to see with the tunes. Nice addition to any collection with a feel for all. Great DL go for it !

Green Lemon 6/18/05
Coming off the first night's set with GL I had a great feeling about night 2 & my prayers were heard. I want to go song by song in this review but i won't. I'll just hit the highlights!
12 Hour Pill opener. Very long intro before the first verse & we were off & running. Nice work by Chris, Steve & Jon coming in around 7:00mins. Settled into a nice dark theme towards the end into Shoestring.
Love, Love, Love. Jon was layin it down for the first 5 mins or so & then it was Jesse's turn to rock the tent. The overall song was played perfect & the jam back into the Love, Love, Love theme was just nailed!! The only thing that i can say bad here was that Wayne was down in the mix.
Now my number 2 song for the whole weekend by the GL. Bear Attack! Rusty nailed the lights going into the song after the speaking parts. It was so sweet,I went right over to him & told him how good that was. At this point Green Lemon had the whole crowd in the palm of there hands. Jon came through here again with some very nice work on the keys.
Also before i forget. Nice No Quarter flow into Mess. Listen to Chris & Jesse nail that whole beginning. Great version of Mess!
Ishmeal had a very spooky feel to it on this night. I have never heard this song sound quite like this before, it's very interesting!
And now we come to the song of the weekend for Green Lemon. Nice Place! This one sums up the whole Festival for me. GL nailed this tune, I mean it's just perfect. Perfect placement in the set, perfect feel of the crowd, i mean freakin perfect!! Hearing it now takes me back to that Own Grown Tent, Standing there looking at my freinds up there rockin the house.
I can't finsh this without talking about Feds & Smack By the Pound.
Feds is Steves white horse. This is were Steve really shines! He has a ton of talent that we haven't even heard yet. Keep talkin my freind i'm hear to listen! Smack By The Pound was ton's of fun, as it always is. This was alittle better than it normally is beacuse Green Lemon knew that they had put on two great shows for the people of Wakarusa. I'm so glad that i got to see them play these two unbelievable shows.
Sorry this is so long. And I most forgot about the most important part. Thanks to highwayjill for the tape!
